of pharmaceutical drugs such as education on minimizing intake, revamp of the fda process or streamlining the drug companies' procedures instead of just finding more money to pay for them? >> well, that's a great question. i think one of the problems we have, particularly for seniors, is there is no prescription drug coverage in medicare. and therefore, when they have to try to purchase drugs they do so on their own, there's no kind of collective bargaining, no power of purchasing among seniors. so i think step one to make sure prescription drugs is more affordable for seniors, and those are the folks who really rely upon prescription drugs a lot these days, is to reform the medicare system, is to have prescription drugs as an integral part of medicare once and for all. the problem we have today is like the patient's bill of rights, particularly with health care, there's a lot of bickering in washington, d.c. it's kind of like a political issue as opposed to a people issue. so what i want to do is i want to call upon republicans and democrats to forget all the arguing and finger pointing, and come

held that there is no more affirmative action in higher education after 2028? >> no, i don't. >> was that the holding of grutter? >> i agree it might, but i want to get to the question, see what i'm trying to pinpoint, because we have such a limited time. and to me, the one thing i want to pinpoint, since you're arguing on that this satisfies grutter if properly understood, as you say that. in looking up, we have a two- court rule. and two courts have found, it seems to me. that here there is a certain -- there is no quota. it is individualized. it is time limited. it was adopted after the consideration of race-neutral means. each applicant receives individual consideration, and race did not become the predominant factor. so i take those as a given. and then i want to know what precisely it is that grutter required in your opinion that makes this different from grutter, in that it was not satisfied here? the ones i listed two courts say are the same. so maybe there's some others. >> i am not sure we agree with those courts. >> we have a rule that two courts say it, we are r

who get out, have enough of them that they are educating us about the truth of life in north korea. there've been several books published and we now have a much better picture of what the truth of the existence is there. but the north korean refugees are performing a second equally important function. i do believe more important. they are hoping their own information starved homeland, just as the world now knows more about north koreans, north koreans still far more about the period. this is to thanks to the efforts of north koreans who have escaped. how did they do that? think a minute. an immigrant. with the first thing he wants to do? he wants to let his family back home know he's okay and tell them about his new life. before a north korean who wants to do that, it's next to impossible. you can't make a phone call to north korea. you can't send an e-mail or text message or facebook and you can't even mail a letter. so the exiles have created a black market in information. they hire chinese careerist across the border and deliver messages, or sometimes they deliver chinese cellph
